I meant to say Thank You to Rockies4Ever concerning my overlooking "living" for the Kennedy Center Honors.  However, we can nominate John for a Presidential Freedom Award.  John would fit into a number of their groups.  Here is the address:

Nominations for the Presidential medal of Freedom can be made by writing the President at the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C., 20500.

I agree. John should have received one of these awards a long time ago.

I bought a package of Ring Dings and put a birthday candle in one of them, wished John HB and said a prayer, blew out the candle and ate the Ring Ding. I watched videos and played his music most of the day until I had to leave for dinner. I wanted to do a Flash Mob at the restaurant singing Country Roads but no one was interested.

I know a number of you have seen the website that shows the commercial featuring Annie's Song.  Well today, I actually saw the commercial on TV.  I think it was on A&E.  It was really "Far Out" to be sitting and suddenly hear Annie's Song, during a show that many people watch.  I want to think it was during Criminal Minds.

What better to use a John Denver song for, than for better Values! ♥

Thank you! For one the most inspiring commercials to come out in a long time. This world NEEDS to hear your message. And John Denver had a way to make WORLD PEACE and human togetherness believable! SO THANK YOU for putting them together!

I wonder what John would have done on his 70th Birthday? He said he wanted to go skiing on his 100th Birthday. Skiing maybe? A Brandy and a cigar? Cognac and a cigar? Quiet dinner or big party? In or out on the town? Alone or with company, family and friends? It's fun to ponder.

It is fun to ponder....maybe all of the above. Go out skiing under the stars, with some friends, back to the lodge, Cognac and a cigar, and an off the cuff jam session with them in front of a roaring fireplace. ♥
